Timeform pick out their three best bets from Bellewstown on Wednesday...

Timeform on Astronomer

NISIOR DONN - 17:05 Bellewstown

Bar a lesser run at Gowran last time, the four-year-old filly NISIOR DONN has been shaping up quite well, and with this drop back in trip promising to suit, she could be the answer with a tongue strap also expected to help her finishing effort. Path of Silver, Bouquet Garni and Highway To Heaven appear to be the chief threats.

COURT QUEEN - 18:35 Bellewstown

Timeform top-rated COURT QUEEN got back on track with a respectable effort at Tipperary last time and she looks favourably handicapped on her 3-y-o form. She wasn't beaten far into fifth behind Jenniechild and another bold bid is expected from near the pace. Lily's Prince and Little Clarinet head up the opposition.

ASTRONOMER - 19:05 Bellewstown

ASTRONOMER improved as expected from his debut effort when landing an 18-runner maiden at Galway 25 days ago. This longer trip promises to suit now handicapping (by Galileo, out of a 10.5f winner) and he can make it 2 wins from 3 starts. The Willie Mullins' trained-pair, Low Sun and Uradel can give him most to think about, the former having won impressively at the Curragh last time.
